Christian Jeffers, 48, who identifies himself as a woman, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on charges of assault, aggravated harassment and threats as hate crimes and a charge of criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a brutal attack on a 29-year-old man who died Tuesday in at the 14th Street subway station in Manhattan.
Jeffers, who wore a black wig and purple lipstick, was caught on video hitting the stranger on the head with a hammer after the two bumped into each other and then exchanged words.
Police said Jeffers has a criminal record dating back to 2007 and includes charges of prostitution, grand larceny, public indecency, theft of services and drug possession.
Jeffers was released from prison last June after serving six years for second-degree robbery.
A week after regaining her freedom, the career criminal was arrested again for petty theft, the New York Post reported.
The victim of Tuesday’s brutal hammer attack told NBC New York that he was returning home after dinner with a friend when he and his companion met Jeffers at the subway station around 9 p.m.
“We saw the attacker come out of the turnstile,” said the victim, who asked not to be named. “As [Jeffers] came out, he bumped into another person who was in front of us.”
After exchanging a few words with the other passer-by, Jeffers allegedly crashed into the 29-year-old Asian on purpose, although the victim said he tried to dodge to avoid a collision.
The victim referred to the suspect with a masculine pronoun, saying, “He turned and tried to come in my face, aggressively come in my face.”
Jeffers is said to have stepped on the victim’s foot.
Video of the attack shows Jeffers, wearing a wig, red jacket and blue jeans, yelling at the victim, “Why did you hit me? why did you hit me
The 48-year-old then pulls a hammer out of her pocket and hits the Asian on the head.
“It happened too fast for me to react,” the victim later said. “I tried to raise my hand because I was expecting something, but I got hit anyway.”
The victim said he then felt blood drip down the side of his face. Photo taken at the scene shows the man sitting on the ground being attended to by paramedics. A small pool of blood can be seen next to him.
The 29-year-old remained conscious and was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
Police initially described Jeffers as male, about 6ft 2 tall, with a wig, purple lipstick, blue jeans, red shoes and a red jacket and carrying a tote bag.
Just after 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jeffers was spotted by a transit officer after jumping over the turnstile. Jeffers, who was wearing the same top and jacket but no wig and no blue jeans and red shoes, was taken into custody. A hammer was found in her pocket.
While being led out of a police station by an officer, Jeffers, who was wearing the same red jacket she wore during the attack, told reporters that the victim “pushed me.”
